Awa no gaijin,

Yeah i know a Japanese public holiday where they mixed labor day and Thanksgiving from the USA.

Wha? "They" didn't mix anything, it was and is a harvest festival holiday and is celebrated, if at all, neither as labor day nor as thanksgiving. Relabeling it "labor and thanksgiving day" was the glorious idea of the post-WW2 occupation forces, no doubt of the US-Americans who just can't possibly live without these two holidays written in their calendar.

Mass masking and vaccines to the max clearly working here then Meanwhile the only mask I've seen worn in the stands at Qatar was the poor Iranian goalkeeper.

Deaths keep rising with each new wave - complete failure. The narrative of "risk reduction" was false. Same variant for a whole year and yet the situation is worse now than it has ever been. Same worthless strategies are still in place - keep maskin', get the newest mRNA booster, and impose insane burdens on people entering/re-entering the country.

I won't hold my breath, but let's hope the new domestically produced Japanese vaccines can offer people some real immune protection!

Clearly you have a better set of ideas than the current ones aimed at reducing transmissions and reducing the risk of serious illness.

So let's hear them.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results - ALBERT EINSTEIN

Mask ON, and Vaxed to the teeth is good example.
